Cuba is heavily influenced by African and Caribbean traditions, and the chefs at Yoly’s Cuban Cafe are capitalizing on these amazing flavors. The adventurous part of you screams for something new and the sabor de cuba (a platter for groups of four or more, including fried plantains, empanadas, alitas de pollo, masitas de puerco, and camarones fritos) jumps off the menu at you. Or get your own plate of masitas de puerco frito (deep fried pork) will not only satisfy, but keep you coming back. Don’t forget the black beans and yucca, both solid staples of Cuban meals.
Open early and closing late seven days a week, El Palmar Restaurant has a huge menu of Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine spanning from breakfast plates, to sandwiches, a variety of traditionally prepared meats, breaded or grilled, plus seafood, salads, postres (desserts), shakes, freshly squeezed juices, and cuban coffee. El Palmar also delivers within Elizabeth’s city limits for no additional charge, so order to your hotel or event and enjoy.
